Garden furniture and loungers are provided along with a BBQ so guests can enjoy eating outside. Towards the bottom of the garden there are fruit trees which guests can enjoy eating in season. The garden has been kept as a great wildlife habitat with Tawny Owls badgers rabbits and pheasants being frequent visitors. Complimentary freshly laid free range hen's eggs are provided whenever available.

Comfortable studio apartment, set in a stunning location. Coastal walks on the doorstep and an amazing, characterful old pub within half a mile. The only slight downside would be that, with so much glass in the property, it may get very warm in sunny summer weather.
